Currently, Hennepin County is home to 1.2 million residents and over 40,000 businesses, and has a budget of $2 Billion. Planning and building for our future needs, especially in the areas of transportation, infrastructure, healthcare and workforce development, in a cost-effective manner, is critical for the continued success of our residents and businesses.
In my time as an Eden Prairie Councilman I've worked with residents and city staff to increase efficiency and effectiveness to keep our property taxes affordable for residents and businesses all while continuing to improve city services. The city has received numerous awards, including the Best City in the Nation to live and retire, the Digital Cities Award for the innovative use of technology, and is financially sound with a AAA bond rating.
I have the experience, passion and skills to be your advocate as Hennepin County Commissioner, and seek to listen and speak out on behalf of the residents and communities of this strong and vibrant area of Hennepin County.
I thank you for your consideration and ask for your continued support and your vote in 2020. Please contact me with any questions and concerns. Your ideas are always welcome.
